oval:org.mitre.oval:def:26644

Squid is a high-performance proxy caching server for web clients supporting FTP Gopher and HTTP data objects. A flaw was found in the way Squid handled malformed HTTP Range headers. A remote attacker able to send HTTP requests to the Squid proxy could use this flaw to crash Squid. (CVE-2014-3609) Red Hat would like to thank the Squid project for reporting this issue. Upstream acknowledges Matthew Daley as the original reporter. All Squid users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages which contain a backported patch to correct this issue. After installing this update the squid service will be restarted automatically.
